Kilimanjaro Climb & Safari

Kilimanjaro: Hahn & Team at High Camp, Ready for Summit Bid

We were treated to a clear view of the upper mountain this morning, which was spectacular and short-lived.  Thick clouds were forming by our 8:30 AM departure for high camp.  We quickly got above the upper limit of any significant vegetation and so when the clouds came in close around us, there really wasn’t much to see.  Lava and pumice.  We were on a great stairmaster, and so we patiently did our exercise.  It took just 2.5 hours to climb the 2,000 vertical feet to Barafu (“ice” in Swahili) Camp.  Timing was exquisite as persistent and heavy sleet began to fall.  Our excellent support staff had built a fine camp for us to shelter in.  We rested, ate, drank and got ready for our main event.  We are in bed early and trying to manage our excitement for a midnight start to a big summit day.  The sleet has quit and the stage is set. 

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
